Guess what, efurrybody? Colby is so famous for bein' the escapin' cat now (read the post below if you don't know the story), that the nice PetCam beans gave Mom FIVE PetCams to give away to our furriends!
Now, of course, you will have to be extra-smart kittehs to avoid detection if your beans win, but on the bright side, they will be so thankful when they DO win that they will probably just drown you in treats!
Oh, and woofies can win for their beans, too!
Just enter here on Mom's blog by leaving a comment with one of our names: "Cheddar" or "Fancy" to win a PetCam! (Mom figures Colby is famous enough now.) Remember, she has FIVE to give away, so dat's pretty good odds, Mom says. Please make sure you have a shipping address in the US if you enter, since they are nice enough to ship them for Mom.

So, furriends, it's me, Colby. I needs ur help!
I have been *looks around furtively* sneakin' outside. How? I'm glad you asked.
Mom and Dad have a hole in the screened-in porch place!
I snuck out, and Mom brought me back in, and found the hole and covered it up.
Now, as you know, I am furry smart *preens*. So, even though they covered up the hole, I found a way out, by pushin' the covering-up stuff aside.
And Mom brought me back in, all grumblin', and made it harder, but I kept finding ways out.
So they put heavier stuff in front of the hole, and on the outside where the hole was, too, and it was LOT harder, but I ran all the way across the porch and did a body-slam into the heavy stuff, and pushed it away, too. 'Cause I'm smart AND strong.
But *sigh*, Mom Saw me.
And when they brought ME back in, Fancy, who is pretty smart, too, sneaked out!
And you know what? Beans don't see so good at night. They go stumblin' around. Isn't that weird?
They searched for Fancy lots and got scared, because this is her new home and Mom worried she would get lost and not know her way back. But Fancy came back, and Mom was happy.
Dad couldn't fix the hole, because he's been painting since we were getting Car Pets. And Mom and Dad wanted the door to the screened porch open when the Car Pet guys were putting in carpet, so they could move the furniture and stuff. So I could get out, but Mom and Dad got really tough, and when I did, Dad, who was getting mad because I am so smart, would put me in the little shallow pool and get my feets wet!
I did NOT like that!
I think they wanted to keep me from going out, but I just made sure I hid better so when I DID get out, they couldn't find me so well.
Mom put a collar on me wif my name and our phone number, which I hate because it has a tinkly bell thing, so I can't hunt like a Mancat.
I has all my yucky shots and stuff, so Dad says Mom should stop worrying, but Mom still does, and wants the porch fixed because she thinks I'll get eaten by a Woofy or sumfin'.
She's like that.
So, all this week, it's been me tryin' to be sneaky and get out, and Mom watching me like a hawk and not letting me have any fun.
But then! Mom got sneaky! Yes, Mom. Moms aren't supposed to be sneaky!
You know what she did? She let me go out on the porch again, BUT she put some strange thing called a PetCam around my neck! Only for a little while, but it got in my way when I went out (of COURSE I got out!).
I came back through the hole myself, and pretended I had been a goody -goody cat and not gone anywhere. And Mom took the Pet Cam off.
Anyway, once she took it off, I figured I was in the clear. Only the thing is...
Mom knows I went out! And, horror of horrors, she knows my bestest hiding places!
Because the PetCam TOOK INCRIMINATING PICTURES!
See, here in the first two pics, I'm pretending to be good, on the screened porch with Cheddar, who never escapes (I think he's just too skeered).
And then here I am running around, you know, hidin' in the grass. You can see our neighbor's houses and the trash cans and stuff.
So now what should I do?!
Mom knows where I hide, and she won't let me out without my collar, and I don't want to wear the Pet Cam thing around my neck because everyone will know where I go!

Dis is Mom's review of a movie starring a woofie named Beethoven. We finks now dey need to make a kitteh movie dat stars US. Fancy could be a ninja, cause she's black, and Colby and I could be the Good Guys dat fight her. Only not really, cause she's kinda tough, and her claws are really sharp!--Cheddar.
Set to release on DVD the day after Christmas, the big mutt that's charmed dog lovers since he first hit the screen returns in Beethoven's Big Break, a new offering available exclusively on DVD from Universal Studios.
This charming flick is delightfully engaging. Animal lover though I am, I was surprised to find myself buying into it completely, and really enjoying the movie from start to finish.
Starring comedian Jonathan Silverman as stressed-out single Dad Eddie, working in Hollywood as an animal handler, Moises Arias (Rico on “Hannah Montana”) as his son Billy, and Daytime Emmy® winner Jennifer Finnigan (“The Bold and the Beautiful”) as a sweet, befuddled script writer on the new animal film who's thrown together with the duo through a series of unlikely events, Beethoven's Big Break also features the music of popular musical artists your kids will love, like the Jonas Brothers, Rhianna, High City Miles and Everlife.
The rambunctious romp sports a supporting cast parents will recognize from other favorite features, too--Rhea Perlman (“Cheers”), Joey Fatone (“Dancing with the Stars,” ‘N Sync), Stephen Tobolowsky (“Heroes”), Oscar Nunez (“The Office”), Eddie Griffin (Undercover Brother) and Cesar Millan (“The Dog Whisperer”) in his feature film debut.
But honestly? My favorite supporting member is the newly-introduced (but sure to to become a mega-star after his debut) Pete The Lizard. Love that lizard.
And don't even get me started on the plus-one-million cuteness factor of Beethoven's puppy co-stars, pictured to the right.
The plot of Beethoven's Big Break is simple: Although animal handler Eddie (Silverman) works with lots of creatures, he has a strict NO PETS ALLOWED policy at home (which is a little counter-intuitive until we learn a secret from his past that Explains All).
Well, as I'm sure you can guess, that policy doesn't last. Though Eddie resists letting his son Billy keep adorable stray dog Beethoven and his family of puppies (who could resist these puppies?!), when the star of the animal film Eddie is working on goes missing, Beethoven jumps in with all four big paws, and Eddie is forced to accept him AND his puppies into their home ( I like the moment when his son, Billy, in a smooth maneuver, points out that Beethoven is a single dad just like Eddie. Nice move!).
Naturally, through his typically rambunctious antics and larger-than-life personality, Beethoven not only crashes into Hollywood but into Eddie’s heart as well.
Beethoven's Big Break is full of more of that over-the-top physical humor kids love, and of course Beethoven is just plain lovable as the shaggy mutt that charms a single Dad.
Featuring lots of great bonus materials, like deleted scenes and a gag reel over ten minutes long that makes me appreciate Silverman's improv (and his co-stars' patience) all the more, Beethoven's Big Break, available exclusively on DVD December 26th, is priced at just $29.98.
Cool Mom tip: Kids can visit kids.yahoo.com/Beethoven for a FREE coloring page of Beethoven and those adorable puppies to download, print and color at home!
P.S. Here's how the smart woofie teaches the little bean wot his name is!--Colby

Mom has been very busy and stressin' out and stuff on account of da Badderee on the Dad's big moving machine broke down TWICE when da Dad was across the country (Mom says he shoulda fixed it da first time!), and now we is getting some new carpets.
So I said to my bruvver dat I don't like da idea of new pets anywheres around--I just got used to dat Fancy cat!--but if day wanna go in the car instead of us, maybe dese carpets wouldn't be so bad.
And you know what? He says carpets are just big rugs! So dat's new stuff to scratch. Dat's much better than new strange kitties riding around in cars wif Mom!
And da Dad was movin' all da big furnitures around, and paintin' stuff, and we had to be careful and stay on da porch so our furs wouldn't get whited from the paint. (I finks Fancy would look cool wif a white stripe down her back, like a skunk, but she wasn't goin' for it.)
So, anyways, lots of dis stress stuff at our house, and den we gets a Kris Mouse card! Us! Da kitties!
Mom says SHE hasn't even gotten any Kris Moose cards yet, but we has. *preens*
Furriends is furry good for gettin' rid of stress, aren't dey?
Fanks, Eric and Flynn!
We LOVES our Kris Moose card.
It has ur pikshur right on it. Dat's furry cool. Yay!
